Resumes are a claims without evidence, and interviewing every candidate to gather that evidence is not a feasible option, especially in countries like India and for roles like those of software development where sheer scale and the complexity of interviews can make the task inordinately expensive if not, impossible. Plus, not everybody is a resume writing genius. Instead of relying on ATS bots that treat resumes like gospel truth and are notorious for sometimes eliminating worthy candidates, wouldn’t you prefer to use something better?

This is where pre-employment assessment tools help provide the evidence for the claims made on the resume and make up for the lack of resume writing skills. These tools help companies objectively assess candidates for the role they have applied for and help mitigate the chances of bad hiring decisions and reduce the per head hiring spend. It is no surprise that over 80% of the Fortune 500 companies leverage such candidate screening tools.

In the table below, we are comparing and contrasting two popular tools – SkillCounty & TestDome to help you decide on which one to use.

Note: Screening tests, hiring tests, pre-hiring tests, employment tests or pre-employment tests literally mean the same thing. So in the article these terms are being used interchangeably.
